Infertility

Infertility affects one in six couples. As well as medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovaries and Endometriosis, there are numerous lifestyle factors that can affect a couple’s chance of conceiving (e.g. smoking, inadequate diet, excess intake of caffeine). When couples are trying to conceive, 80% will be pregnant after one year and 90% after two. If you are having trouble conceiving we will need to look at your hormones, the patency of your fallopian tubes and your partner’s sperm. These investigations are usually completed in 3-4 weeks and we can then discuss your further management which may include waiting for natural conception, induction of ovulation, surgery for Endometriosis or referral to a specialist fertility unit, Fertility First (see Affiliations)
